    I finished this dress yesterday (see above). DD says she doesn’t like it! Argh! I just thought she might like to wear a red dress for the concert. Oh well.

    What a pain.. I think it's gorgeous. Luckily my daughter hasn't had too much of an opinion so far lol. Or maybe I just make things she likes.

    Made these for my baby. Not sure if they will use them though as I might go over due date. 20181207_154153.jpg

    This afternoons project.. a Santa sack for DD. It’s roughly the size of a toddler pillow case.

    IMG_1707.jpg

    It’s a bit rough as it was all freehand. I think I spent more time unpicking silly mistakes than it would have taken to make the whole bloody thing (without mistakes). I’m not sure how long the decorative cord will last, but at least it’s easily replaceable.

    In relation to the cord, any tips for what to do to stop the fraying? Currently I’ve just used sticky tape but I’m hoping there’s a more refined way to do it

    If it's synthetic could you melt the ends? I'm not sure if this would work, but I'm just going to throw it out there - clear nail polish?

    If the cord is synthetic you could melt the ends slightly under a flame. That's what I used to do with ribbons..

    Can you just tie knots in the ends?

    Default Show me your sewing! #3

    Just popped in for a look around and saw that this little thread I started has a third thread now! you guys are awesome, I love seeing all the photos of what everyone’s been sewing so I better sub in!

    I’ve done hardly anything all year (spare time has been a thing of the past since DS was born), but I did make Christmas skirts for my girls and a pair of matching shorts for little brother

    Someone in here made some kids undies didn’t they? @Mamasupial was it you? I was talking to a school mum who was talking about her tiny dd wanting to toilet train but undies don’t fit and I said I had seen some cute undies somewhere so I would check out the pattern for her and hopefully it is small enough for her dd but this thread is so long I can’t find it!
